MEM

interactive type system by Jakob Runge and Elena Schaedel

The experimental uppercase font MeM blurs the boundaries between graphic and type design and prioritises style and creative flair over blatant legibility. It produces many personalities, each individual and emotive. You will never know which of the alternating letters is going to occur next. Basically, at the heart of it all is MeM: four different weights and letter shapes melded together into one powerful font and shuffled with the sleek usability of OpenType.

The font is available at YouWorkForThem, HypeForType and MyFonts

amsterdam fonts

typeface design

The concept behind these five fonts originated during an excursion to Amsterdam. The intention of creating a variety of typefaces was to capture directly the different impressions that Amsterdam can leave. Each font is based on a topic derived from the visual experience and range from bridges and facades to the iconic bicycle. In the implementation of each, it occurred both as a representational solution as well as by associative approach. The construction of each font was mainly inspired by clean shapes of geometry and readability in these creations was a secondary intent as the typefaces are more considered as display types.
